I must have been kidding myself on Friday afternoon when I said I would leave TWW and check back in on Monday. I can't help but wonder what's going on with you guys, and heaven forbid I miss someone's surprise bfp! ;) The good news, though, is that as of tomorrow I'll be 6dpo and HALFWAY to testing!
I've had a few bouts of nervousness, but for the most part I'm still feeling pretty good about this wait. In true spaz fashion I will now document my "symptoms", which are probably too early to be a sign of anything except hyper-observant ttc brain:
No sore bb's, no cramps to speak of, no skin breakouts. Normally (and much to my dismay) I cramp and have sore bb's from O until AF. Usually a few days after O my skin goes nuts and I have bumps all over my chin and temples. I currently have one single spot, and it's already disappearing. I'm really happy about all of these things, pregnancy related or not! As for the less exciting changes, I have been experiencing bizarre hip/knee/sciatica type pain on my left side. This is definitely new for me. I also woke up stuffy and sinusy as hell, but it's very manageable and I'm hoping it'll be gone shortly. I usually have a fair amount of creamy cm after O until AF, but it's been consistently sticky or dry since 1dpo. Not sure what, if anything, that means.
I was going to divide these into two categories, one being 'things that are different this cycle' and the other being 'things that are the same.' This wait has been totally different in all the best ways. Pregnancy? FertiliTea magic? Halfway to (possible) confirmation!
I saw on Facebook that another of my friends is pregnant. Can we just change its name to An-Update-of-Everyone-Who-Is-Pregnant-But-You-Book? Haha. I realized I never felt this way to see people getting married, and I think it's because marriage is a thing that you can decide to do as a couple and you know that if you want it to happen it will happen. You can schedule a date and make your plans and BAM, you're married. Totally not the case with baby-making, and thus, the green monster of envy gnaws at me despite my best efforts. I tell myself that my perfect bfp month is forthcoming, and that jealousy is bad for the bean and I have no room for it here. ;) Lol.
Long story short, how is this wait treating you? Anyone else planning to eat their body weight in rotel queso and tortilla chips tonight? ;) Haha.
Peace, love, & baby dust! We're ALMOST there!
